Cape Town - South Africa's Kevin Anderson has thanked his support base following a runner-up finish at Wimbledon.
The eighth seed reached his first Wimbledon final where he lost to Serbia's Novak Djokovic in straight sets on Sunday.
Anderson earlier made headlines when he defeated eight-time former champion Roger Federer in the quarter-finals and then beat American John Isner in a marathon semi-final that lasted a record six hours and 36 minutes.
Anderson took to social media afterwards, saying he will take a lot of positives from his run to the Wimbledon title match.
He also congratulated Djokovic, who won his 13th Grand Slam on Sunday.
It means so much for me to have played in the @Wimbledon final. There are so many positives and great memories I will be taking with me. Thanks to everyone from South Africa and around the world for your support and messages. It has been an incredibly special fortnight. pic.twitter.com/WxKGvl6bho— Kevin Anderson (@KAndersonATP) July 15, 2018
